Wheat germ? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Wheat germ?

    This is a bit odd, I know, but my husband's been eating Kretchmer's honey wheat germ for breakfast EVERY DAY for probably 30 years. The problem is that none of the stores here are carrying it anymore. He stocked up as soon as he realized what was going on, but he'll run out sooner or later. I think they may be discontinuing it.

    How can I take regular wheat germ and turn it into the honey wheat germ? I was thinking of taking watered-down honey and coating untoasted wheat germ with it, and toasting it that way, but I am not sure it will work.

    Any ideas? I'm willing to make it in large batches and freeze it. I just want him to have what he wants for breakfast.

    Hi Elizabeth!

    It is hard to imagine a product like that getting canned. But they will probably keep making wheat germ so they probably won't sell the honey nut version to another company...

    Poking around online it looks like Quaker is discontinuing the Honey Crunch version. There are some sites online that have it. FoodServiceDirect seems to have it at prices almost half of everyone else and claim it is in stock. Others have it at above retail which makes it appear to be demand/termination driven.

    I think it will work. Will probably take some experimentation and end up with a different texture but... I would say go for it. I don't know if you need to water down the honey. My first try would be to heat the honey so it is runny and drizzle it on a bowl of wheat germ and toss it, adding the honey in several doses. Then dry it in a low oven or fruit dryer. Might have to break it up some but...

    Good Luck!
